Fighting Corruption and Exposing the Truth
The Congressional Integrity Project is committed to ensuring that public officials work in the public interest, not their own.
Demanding Integrity from Congress
The Congressional Integrity Project will shed light on how our elected representatives degrade the integrity of the legislative branch to benefit themselves and those close to them. Conservatives in Congress are turning a blind eye to misconduct to protect their allies. Worse, they are trying to distract the American people with baseless, partisan investigations to smear their opponents.
CIP will use every tool at our disposal to stop them from misleading and manipulating the American people.
One of Congress’s most important responsibilities is to ensure public officials work in the public interest, not their own.
But conservatives in Congress are more interested in protecting their allies, smearing their political opponents, and tightening their grip on power. CIP is changing that dynamic. We’re exposing the truth about their record of enriching themselves and those close to them and enabling corruption at the highest levels — all while trying to distract voters with misinformation.
All In The Family: Corruption and Self-Dealing on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee
In the U.S. Senate, the task of providing primary oversight of “government operations” falls to the Homeland Security and
Governmental Affairs Committee. Unfortunately, members of the GOP majority consistently ignore wrongdoing at the highest levels of government when it
does not suit their agenda.
The Covid-19 pandemic has now killed more than 214,000 Americans, with no end in sight. Elected officials should be doing everything they can to preserve health care protections and expand coverage to everyone. Instead, some — like U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) — remain focused on destroying health protections provided by the Affordable Care Act.
Johnson’s massive fortune is the direct result of nepotism and self-dealing in both the private sector and the U.S. Senate.
